Modern to Traditional

Hello all, Its been a while and I apologise, but I have been rather busy. I have been working on some new techniques for converting digital models to physical replicas, and so far its going quite well. Although I would regard myself as a traditional sculptor its been quite some time since I have actual done anything  with clay. Its now time to combine my past with what I have been concentrating on for the last ten years or so, to combine digital technologies with traditional techniques. So far I have had a couple of digital models printed...

Commission

Commissioned over Christmas to do a couple of pet portraits, not really my thing but thought I would give it a whirl, they turned out ok, but I always tend to think the client wants chocolatebox, so tend to conform a bit rather than doing stuff I would like. [Show as slideshow]

Shadow Colour

Shadow Colour

Had a play with photoshop to experiment with some colour and shadow values. I created a simple image using vibrant block colours. Primaru colours were chosen for the main forms and floor, I added a yellow background later. The question you need to ask yourself is what colours do the shadows seem to be, are they all the same colour, no matter what its cast on, The light in this case is a simple white light, no need to complicate things. An area that is hidden from light does not mean it does not have colour. Shadowed area can contain many...

Concept Art Cover

Things moving along at work recently, and looks like we will be heading in a new direction. So decided to do some concept art work, basically to see  what I could come up with. The drawing is based on a model created by a colleague (Guy) that he used in a little test project. I simple scroller shooter game (I am no games player so not sure of exact terminology), a traditional looking shooter really. The look I was aiming for was a bit of 50’s/60’s comic book, looking into the future type feel. I needed to depict a look of speed...

New images and new brushes

Bit of a back to basics, playing with colour and light and testing some new photoshop brushes, have created some that I am very happy with, here is some work, the interior scene is created using my new brushes. Its an image that has very little detail but a lot of atmosphere, this is my aim in a lot  of images I create. [Show as slideshow]

Some Illustrations

Here a three of  the five illustration I did last week, did five from concept to finished images in six days, bit of a push but am fairly happy with these three. The other two could do with some more work, but have to move on to the next project and as they were ‘in house’ they can be left, not the best practice really as things should be finalized and then put to bed, decision was out of my hands. Interesting job and hope to get more like it, I am certainly going to develop the style/technique in my own time for my personal work...

Editorial Illustration

Work for the next six days- illustrating some digital business concepts, 30 concept sketches, take 10 to the next level and finally six fully finished images. Bit of a tall order if you ask me, but hey, gota try. Not done a lot of this type of illustrating for a long time and forgot how difficult it was. Its not so much the illustrations themselves, they should sort themselves out through the process I have to follow. The hard part is coming up with the concept itself, and getting in the frame of mind in order to get the message of the...

More colour studies

hi, Still reading and studying colour theory and trying to make sense of the different areas of the subject. And also fill gaps in my education on the subject. In this latest sketch I was trying to pay more attention to colour temperature to get the effect of a vast landscape, particularly distance. Using colour temperature as a basis and trying to correctly pick the relevant colour in photoshops colour picker, starting from a low value, low saturation and moving to a higher value and saturation, so moving in a diagonal direction. While...

Bit of colour theory, sort of!

Bit of colour theory, sort of!

Been watching and reading all about colour theory, and the consequences when working digitally, although its the same as its always been, I have tended to become a bit confused when it comes to terminology. There are loads of tutorials on the subject al over the net, but I have noticed a trend toward two ways of describing it. The first talks about hue, chroma and value, the other being, temperature, chroma and value. The terminology is more or less the same except temperature is a way of describing colour and its use in painting, colder...

Portrait

Hi all, created this portrait in photoshop and the main aim was to experiment with my process of creating a digital portrait, I do apologise that it was taken from a photo I found on the web, and not from a real model, doing something from life is far better and you will learn a lot more, life drawing is not so much about the drawing as learning to look, remember that.I havnt used any blend modes or filters just a variety of brushes and all at 100% oppacity. I needed to keep everything at full opacity in order to understand how one colour...
